Well?

I'm one day away from 37 weeks and the prelabor is playing games with my mind! This last week I've started having minor, but real, contractions--like strong menstrual cramps. In the last 24 hours, they've picked up in frequency to the point that I just couldn't pull myself out of bed this morning. I don't have to breathe through them or anything, but I do have to stop whatever I'm doing and focus on them.

I've also lost part of my plug, and I can tell that baby is VERY low. Every BH contraction pushes the little guy against my cervix.

On the one hand it all sounds like things are getting ready to go. On the other, I'm trying to ignore it because my body did this kind of stuff for a full month with each of my other boys.

I'm going to have my mw check me at our next appt (Friday) to get a better idea of what is or isn't going on.

I could have written this myself except I did not have this with either of my other two pregnancies. I also feel like crap (in many different ways) through out the day. It's almost time though !!!!!!!!! Are you as ready as you are getting?

I'm mostly ready. There are a couple of things I would like to do, but its not a big deal if they don't happen.

The main thing is that DH needs to dig the baby carriers and swing out of our storage closet and assemble the swing. But that's totally on him Smile
